The Marriage Proposal
by Celestine Hitiura Vaite
Materena Mahi likes movies about love. And after fourteen years with Pito, the father of her three children, she wants a ring on her finger and a framed wedding certificate on the wall. But Pito does not like movies about love. Pito thinks that when you give a woman a ring and a wedding certificate she's going to start acting like she's the boss.
Materena Mahi likes movies about love. And after fourteen years with Pito, the father of her three children, she wants a ring on her finger and a framed wedding certificate on the wall. But Pito does not like movies about love. He likes movies with action and as little talking as possible. Pito thinks that when you give a woman a ring and a wedding certificate she's going to start acting like she's the boss. "Eh," he insists, "it's the rope around the neck." So when a drunken Pito finally proposes, Materena thinks she wouldn't mind becoming a madame. Before long every relative is giving her advice and Materena is finding it hard to juggle her family, her job and the plans for the wedding. And it doesn't help that the groom-to-be seems to have forgotten his proposal. Suddenly, she's not even sure that she really wants that ring on her finger after all...
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"Like Alexander McCall Smith in his No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, Vaite excels at depicting the warm sense of community that pervades her Tahitian island setting... In charming fashion, Vaite conveys universal truths about men and women and the mysteries at the heart of every romantic relationship." * Booklist * "Such is this first-time novelist's skill that she weaves serious issues so seamlessly into the narrative that one hardly realises one is being shown something political." * New Zealand Herald * "What a gorgeous, evocative novel! It charmed me from beginning to end" * Sophie Kinsella * "A feast...busting with vitality and charm" * Sydney Morning Herald *
